First Day of School
Working side by side to make Calvert County
a safer place to live
On Tuesday, Aug. 26, I sent my Calvert High senior off
to his first day of school and headed south on Route 4
to my job at Pax River. What a sight I did behold. Everywhere there were
deputies and troopers, working radar and patrolling the roads. The Troopers
and Deputies were working side by side, in unmarked and marked vehicles,
plain cloths and uniforms.
This is just the presence
we need on our roads to begin the process of eliminating road rage and
reckless driving. I bet the average speed on route 4 was no more than 60 mph
that day. And for anyone who drives that stretch of highway knows the
average speed on any other day is 70 plus.
Hats off to Lt. Homer Rich and
Sheriff Mike Evans. We must continue this good work and as a community,
stand by our law enforcement agencies to dramatically reduce traffic
accidents and deaths on our roads. Lets keep up the continued presence of
police officers on our highways and eradicate destructive driving behaviors.

Hats off to the Calvert County Sheriff's Office and the
Maryland State Police for their combined efforts in attempting to reduce
speeders on our roadways. On Tuesday, Aug. 26, I personally witnessed
numerous law enforcement officers vigilantly patrolling the north end of the
county. What a fine day to crack down on speeders and aggressive drivers
since it was our children's first day back to school. Sheriff Mike Evans
also had a deputy at every public school on Tuesday to show the support of
the sheriff's office for children's safety. Thanks for making every effort
in keeping our county and children safe. Keep up the good work Sheriff Evans
and Lt. Rich.
